“Modeling bullying behavior in front of our kids is shameful”
Michael Patrick Leahy reports on a video where Arizona teacher union official demands his union member school liaisons bully nonmembers into participating in walkouts and other demonstrations.
Arizona is a Right to Work state. Teachers can resign their union membership at any time if they do not agree with what teacher union officials are doing. Nonmembers should not be harassed and intimidated by union officials for their beliefs, or refusal to participate in union-generated disruptions and protests.
“So if you have people that say by God I don’t want to walk out again, I’ll never do that again, you better make sure they’re in a red shirt every Wednesday,” Thomas said at the beginning of the 24 second video, in which he spoke to several teachers wearing trademark #RedforEd red shirts.
